But there's a few out there I enjoy in particular, because they not only inform, but they entertain as well--and that's what I try to do. So I thought I'd point you to three I really enjoy on a regular basis.
The One Minute Mason
|Bro. Steve Harrison|
Whence Came You?
Whence Came You? They are short radio programs you can listen to on your computer, and wireless devices, etc. Don't worry, if you're not hi-tech, there's a little tool right on his site you can listen to his podcasts on (that's I listen to them). His broadcasts are excellent, in fact, that's how I came to know him. He shared one of the pieces I'd written on The Midnight Freemason with his listeners--Freemasons and Beer. His podcasts offer a little something for everyone. Usually a piece on Freemasonry, nearly always he features a piece about a famous Freemason--always full of content, and always gives me something to think about. He's been posting more blog entries lately, which are fun to read, too, and I was most impressed with a video he produced. In fact, that's why I decided I'd give the whole video thing a try. Watch it--he's way better at it than I am.
Be sure and check out Whence Came You? According to his Facebook page, he's got a new podcast coming out today!
The Working Tools Masonic Magazine
Now this is a great magazine! Editor Cory Sigler has done a great job putting together a magazine that features a lot of unique content, a lot of guest contributors (including me), and some regular features that I look forward to each month. The March 2012 issue is out, and it's a hallmark--the 50th edition! No small accomplishment--this isn't a newsletter by any means, it runs, on average, about fifty pages. The newest edition features articles by eight Masonic authors, and recaps some of the fun editor Cory Sigler had a Masonic Week in Virginia. And if you took my advice earlier, and visited the One Minute Mason, you'll be pleased to know he's a regular contributor to the magazine as well.
Now I'll be honest, I picked these three for a reason, as you've probably figured out. Our paths cross from time to time. You'll find their stuff on here, and you'll find my stuff on their blogs, magazines, websites, and podcasts from time to time. We all do the same thing, each in our own unique way--we share our love of the fraternity hopefully in way that educates and entertains. We all seem to share a genuine disdain for the bland and boring.
There's a few other blogs and websites I enjoy--you'll find those in the links section off to the right side of the blog. There's a lot of great stuff out there if you know where to look--obviously you do, you're here aren't you? :-)
